He was born February 26, 1948 in Houston, Texas to Etoile Manning Stone and Joseph Hyrum Stone.
He married Shari Fairbanks in the Los Angeles Temple on June 7, 1969.
Dale grew up in Houston, Texas, attended Brigham Young University, and served as a missionary for the LDS church in the Great Lakes Mission.
After college, Dale and Shari settled in Alvin, Texas, and he was a firefighter for the Houston Fire Department.
He then partnered with his brother-in-law, Melvin Hopkins, to form South Houston Concrete Pipe Company where he spent the remainder of his career.
Dale, Shari, and children moved to Utah in 1990 while continuing to commute to Texas to manage the business.
Dale lived a very active life. He loved spending time with his family at their bay house, and more recently in St. George. He enjoyed many hobbies including fishing, golfing, boating, but most of all his love of riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle. This last year Dale became a proud member of the Kiwanis club.
